Chicken & Sweet Potato Layer Cake

This delight is sure to get tails wagging and tongues drooling! The homemade masterpiece is crafted with love and care, using wholesome ingredients that not only satisfy your furry friend’s taste buds but also ensure they enjoy a nutritious treat.

Serves: 1 cake


  • Recommended as a treat only, no more than 100-200g per serving.
  • 1kg sweet potato, peeled & roughly chopped
  • 1kg fresh chicken mince
  • Olive oil or coconut oil, for cooking
  • 200g Greek yoghurt
  • Handful Lyka Air-dried Treats
  • Handful fresh raspberries
  • Handful fresh blueberries


  1. Add the sweet potato to a large saucepan of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins or until tender. Drain well, then leave to dry for a few mins. Mash or purée, then set aside to cool.
  2. For the chicken mince layer, divide the mince into 3 even round portions and flatten out to about 2cm thick. Cook in a frying pan drizzled with olive or coconut oil over medium heat until golden. Set aside to cool
  3. To assemble the cake ready for your pup, place a chicken “cake layer” on a plate or serving board and spread a generous amount of sweet potato mash “frosting” on top. Repeat with the remaining chicken and mash.
  4. To finish, spread the top with yoghurt “frosting”. Top with Lyka’s healthy Airdried Treats, raspberries and blueberries. Refrigerate until needed.
  5. Your pup’s cake will last in a sealed container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Tip: For Lyka customers, you can replace the chicken mince with the Free-Range Chow Chompin’ Chicken Bowl and top with Pupper Supps or Lyka’s Air-dried Treats for extra nutritious goodness.

Pets of the Homeless

Christmas is a time for making meaningful connections, creating memories and giving to those in need. This year, Emma wanted to shine a spotlight on Pets of the Homeless, a compassionate organisation dedicated to helping both the homeless and their beloved animal companions. Giving your time, resources or funds to a charity at Christmas sends a profound message of compassion. It reminds us that during a time when many are focused on gift-giving and celebration, there are individuals and animals who are struggling just to survive. Your support shows that the true spirit of the holiday season lies in helping those in need, whether they have two legs or four.
